More Color Combinations from Pressed Petals

I love to collect and use Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Papers. What a great way to find inspiration for our projects! The colors and patterns pair perfectly with other products we love. Since the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper debuted with Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog, I have shared several projects that showcase its colors and patterns in a variety of projects. I’m excited to share a bit more about these papers today.

I often pull my colors right from the Designer Series Papers as a starter. That’s a huge benefit of our Designer Series Papers – they are designed with the amazing shades in our color families, so the pair perfectly with our cardstock, inks and accessories. Here’s a look at the patterns and colors in the gorgeous Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper:

Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up! 2019 Annual Catalog, 149500What makes this paper “Specialty”? Several things: (1) it’s a lightweight paper with photographic images of real pressed petals on one side and vintage designs on the other and (2) there are 24 sheets in each pack – that means you get FOUR each of the six, double-sided designs in the pack of paper. Also similar to the Petal Promenade Designer Paper from last year’s catalog, this pack of papers has a page of designs that can be cut to card size or used as trim (part of that page is shown first in the picture above).

Not only are the pages in this pack of paper beautiful, but they are versatile. The pages can be showcased throughout the year with projects throughout the year. This pack of papers includes Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz, Rococo Rose, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla. That’s a gorgeous mix of browns, reds and greens – and each page has it’s very own inspiration. Such a great collection of colors!

If you love this paper as much as I do, you can shop the suite of products that coordinates with it:

I’ve used the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Papers several times in the short time it’s been available to us. It’s gorgeous and so easy to use! Here are cards I’ve made with the pages from Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper (you can click on the photo to read the original post about each project), along with some inspiration photos from Stampin’ Up!:

Today I’m going to share a couple more suggestions for pulling these colors right from the patterns in the Designer Series Paper.

Straight from the Papers

These colors are combined from the colors exclusively in this pack of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper:

Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Rococo Rose, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Very Vanilla, Merry Merlot, Night of Navy

Combined with Other Colors

By adding one other color to the shades in these colors, you can really transform the feel of the pages – or create all new combinations with inspiration from the paper. Here are some color combinations starters that feature two colors from this pack of papers and one color from outside the pack:

Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Pear Pizzazz, Grapefruit Grove, Rococo Rose Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Terracotta Tile, Soft Suede, Mossy Meadow Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Crumb Cake, Merry Merlot, Pretty Peacock

By limiting the colors you’ll use in a project (or expanding the colors to those outside a pack of papers), you can really find some beautiful color combinations for our projects.

I hope you find this helpful, I and I hope some of these combinations inspire you.  Please save any (or all of these) to Pinterest for future reference. To follow me on Pinterest, please click here: follow me on Pinterest.
